Happy Tuesday, and welcome to another challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week our theme is Furry or Feathered Friends. We ask you to make a card that features any furry or feathered friend(s), which could be any animal, bird, or animal/bird print paper. No insects or spideys, though, no matter how much fur they have, got that?! (ew)
For my card I chose a furry, huggie bear:
SOS challenge #7 waaay back in July of 2011. It may or may not have still been out, since I have nowhere to put kits, as I don't usually buy them. The patterned papers, ribbon, brown layer, button and red layer under the circle are all from the kit.
The bear is my furry friend, And now for the sad, sad story. The bear is from a Paper Smooches set, and it has (had) an accompanying "Bear Hugs" sentiment. I pulled out the sentiment when I took out the bear, then whilst in the throes of coloring the bear, my hand brushed against the sentiment and I heard the sound of something hitting ... something. I froze. I looked down.
Now remember, I have a standing desk, and it's angled (things slide off all the time). I also have white carpet. This was a small clear stamp. I also store all my not-used-yet-so-I-can't-put-it-away bags and boxes of stuff at the foot of my standing desk. Let's just call it what it is: an abyss. I sat down and felt around. Nothing. I started emptying bags and boxes. Nothing. It is gone.
So for this card I had to pull out the Hugs sentiment from another set. I also had to put the bear set away sans Bear Hugs sentiment. I haz a sad. :(
Will I change my ways? Nope. I shall adapt, though. From now on I will always stick my stamps to a block when I take them out of the package. I will not lose another one! Let this be a lesson to us all.
Alrighty, then. Now it's your turn. Go into your stash and find a furry or feathered friend (remember, no insects or spideys). Then make a card, and link us up over at Shopping Our Stash so we can see what you've made!
Thanks for stopping by!
